How am I supposed to sleep
when my brain will not shut up?
How am I supposed to shut it up
when I don't even know what it is thinking?
So tell me anxiety what it is that you say,
cause tobight I can't seem to get away
from your gentle murmurs
you sweet familiar talk
going round in empty circles
to the ticking of the clock.
Tell me now so I can sleep,
or will I see the sunrise peek through the night
and now it is day,
but those gentle murmurs won't go away.
